Pop’s Picks Week 13: Jets, Titans, Bengals, and Dolphins upset weekend!

I often mentioned that the Titans win games they’re supposed to lose and then follow up by losing games they should win. Therefore beating the Eagles will be a regular thing for them. The Jets have a solid defence, and Mike White gives them efficiency. The Jets will win big. The Dolphin’s offence is going to give the 49ers fits. The Bengals are rolling and will win a close one.

Pop’s Pop’s record last Week: 

Week: Straight up 10-5-0 Spread 7-8-0
Season: Straight up 102-77-1 Spread 90-84-5

Bills (8-3) at Patriots(6-5)
Line: Bills are favoured by 3.5

The Patriots are on the cusp of playoff contention; they need this game badly. The Patriots will scheme up something and will keep it close. The Bills have been turning over the ball in the red zone lately; this could be a concern visiting the Patriots. The Bills also need to win this game to keep up with the Dolphins.

Bills win but don’t cover.

Browns (4-7) at Texans (1-9-1)  
Line: Browns are favoured by 7

Deshaun Watson will debut as a Brown against his old team. The Browns have a better team, and the addition of Deshaun will spark their offence. As they do every week, the Texans will put up a solid effort and try to keep the game close but will lose again.

Browns win but don’t cover.
Texans lead the series 7-5-0

Broncos (3-8) at Ravens (7-4)
Line: Ravens are favoured by 8

Broncos are having a miserable season and are disappointing their new ownership group—Ravens suffered a painful loss against the Jaguars. They need to get over it. The Ravens can’t afford to keep the game close and get victimized by more last-minute heroics.

Ravens win but don’t cover.
Ravens lead the series 9-6-0

Packers (4-8) at Bears (3-9)
Line: Packers are favoured by 4.5

I wonder if Rodgers can still say that he owns the Bears. Regardless, the Packers have enough to beat the Bears. Although the Bears have been running the ball successfully, they still can’t win and won’t be winning against the Packers.

Packers win and cover.
Packers lead the series 104-95-6.

Jaguars(4-7) at Lions (4-7)
Line: Jaguars favoured by 1

The Lions gave the Bills all they could handle last week. The Jaguars had a surprising and miraculous last-minute victory against the Ravens. I like the way Trevor Lawerence is playing and leading his team.

Jaguars win and cover. 
Lions lead the series 4-3-0.  

Jets (7-4) at Vikings(9-2)
Line: Vikings are favoured by 3

The Jets benched Wilson, and White didn’t disappoint, leading the Jets to a lob-sided victory against the Bears. The Vikings rebounded from the thrashing they took against the Cowboys. The Jets will present the Vikings with a difficult challenge. I’m taking the points and the Jets.

Jets win.
Jets lead the series 8-3-0.

Steelers (4-7) at Falcons(5-7)
Line: Steelers are favoured by 1

The Falcons couldn’t get in the end zone at the end of the game against the Redskins and couldn’t finish what seemed to be a win. On the other hand, the Steelers were able to hold off the Colts. The Steelers know how to win; the Falcons have yet to arrive. 

Steelers win 
Steelers lead the series 14-2-1.

Titans (7-4) at Eagles (10-1)
Line: Eagles are favoured by 5.5

As good as the Eagles played against the Packers, they still allowed 33 points. The Titans play the run well and run the ball. The Eagles can’t win them all and will inevitably lose some games, which is one of them. The Titans win games they are supposed to lose, and this is one of them. I’m taking the points and the Titans.

Titans win
Eagles lead the series 7-5-0.

Commanders (7-5) at Giants(7-4)
Line: Commanders are favoured by 2.5

This is a must-win game for both teams. The Giants have been banged and losing of late. The Commanders are healthy and winning of late. Somehow the Giants get slightly healthier and end up winning a close one.

Giants win and cover. 
Giants lead the series 105-71-4.

Dolphins (8-3) at 49ers (7-4)
Line: 49ers are favoured by 4

The Niners are getting healthier and beating every team in their path. The Dolphins pose a much more significant challenge. I’m Carefully taking the Dolphins in a close game.

Dolphins win and cover. 
Dolphins lead the series 8-6-0.

Seahawks (6-5) at Rams (3-8)
Line: Seahawks are favoured by 7

The Rams are getting more banged up; losing Aaron Donald is disappointing. Finding another win on their schedule will be difficult. Seahawks rebound from a close and tough loss to the Raiders.

Seahawks win and cover.
Seahawks lead the series 25-24-0.

Chargers (6-5) at Raiders (4-7)
Line: Chargers are favoured by 1.5

Beating the Seahawks should give the Raiders some momentum as the Chargers squeezed a last-minute one-point win over the Cardinals. This will be a close game; I’m taking the Raiders and the points.

Raiders win and cover.
Raiders lead the series 67-57-2.

Chiefs (9-2) at Bengals (7-4)
Line: Chiefs are favoured by 2

The Bengals are slowly accumulating a winning record and playing very well. The Chiefs are playing great football. The Bengals get this tough win. I’m taking the points, and the Bengals

Bengals win
Bengals lead the series 17-14-0.

Colts (4-6-1) at Cowboys (8-3)
Line: Cowboys are favoured by 11

Although on defence, the Colts match very well with the Cowboys, as the Colts have a very strong front four and can stop the run; the Cowboys are a better team and win. 

Cowboys win but don’t cover.
Cowboys lead the series 10-7-0.

Saints (4-8) at Bucs (5-6)
Line: Bucs are favoured by 3.5

Technically the Saints are still alive for first place and a playoff spot. I don’t see that happening. The Bucs have yet to be able to win some key games. The Bucs will win this to pivot themselves ahead of the Falcons for first place in the division.

Bucs win but don’t cover.
Saints lead the series 29-23-0.
